Warren Tallman class 1986


Published July 1, 1986


Warren Tallman contrasts the attitude toward language of the poets of the modern period (which he defines as spanning 1600 to 1900) and those of the postmodern period (spanning in his definition 1900 to the present), and prophesies the imminent return of "personal poetry" to the fore. Using examples from Chaucer, Yeats and Donne, Tallman proposes that consonants lead the mind to speech, while vowels lead it to song. Other topics covered include Freud and Jung (including a discussion of the idea of synchronicity), Buddhism and poetry (a subject on which we hear Ginsberg's opinion), and the clusters of poems written by Ginsberg and Creeley in the Bay Area in the 1950's.
